Engaged for 2 Years, Kristen Bell Reveals She Won’t Wed Until Gays Can. PERIOD.
Of course everyone loves the titular characters of Forgetting Sarah Marshall and Veronica Mars (FACT), but after reading The Advocate’s profile on Kristen Bell we’ve fallen in love with the woman behind the characters (FACT!).
Kristen had us at blampers and her deep appreciation for gay theater geeks, but it’s her vow to not marry her fiance of two years, Dax Shepard, until marriage equality is available to all LGBT Americans that put us over the moon with respect.
We’ve heard similar pledges from Brad and Angelina in the past, but Kristen sounds totally sincere.
Yeah, I get a ton of questions about when Dax and I are getting married. I usually blow them off because it’s nobody’s business. To be honest with you — and this is the first time I’ve ever said this to a journalist, but it feels like the perfect time and place — the reason we’re not rushing to get married is because I don’t feel appropriate taking advantage of a right that’s denied to my best friends. That’s why we’ve been so hesitant. Dax and I have talked about it a lot, and this issue is very important to both of us. We’re just standing up for what we believe in. Period.
Thank you for sharing that.
You’re welcome. Listen, we’re on your side. I recently tweeted about this embarrassing poster that shows how many states where you can marry your same-sex significant other and how many more states where you can marry your cousin. It’s fucking ridiculous.
The entire interview is absolutely fantastic. Not an ounce of fluff. Kristen talks Cher, Christina Aguilera, Zachary Quinto and lesbian love scenes. Real talk, it’s one of the best celebrity interviews we’ve read in ages. The Advocate done good on this one.
